Appointments and Promotions

Acting Administrative Director Glenn A. Grant, J.A.D., recently announced the following managerial appointments:

  • Tyrone V. Harvey has been promoted to assistant director of application technology.  He succeeds Bruno Giuliari, who succeeded Jon Massey as assistant director of technical services and operations.  Massey retired on Dec. 31 after 21 years with the Judiciary. “Jon Massey has been a tremendous advocate for the Judiciary’s technology needs,” said Judge Grant.  “As we move further into the new century, we must continue to develop and enhance our technology systems to expand access, improve efficiency and ensure the integrity of our databases.

    “During his nearly 20 years with the Judiciary, Tyrone Harvey has distinguished himself not only as a programmer, but as an accomplished leader and a well-regarded colleague. A proven and dedicated manager, Bruno Giuliari brings more than 25 years of Judiciary IT experience to his new assignment.  I am confident that these new appointments will ensure a smooth transition for what has become a critical area of our operation.” 

    In his new position, Harvey will be responsible for database management, data security and applications architecture.  He will play a critical role in defining and developing technology standards to enable the Judiciary to adopt future technologies quickly in order to meet the evolving demands of the courts and the public. 

    In addition, Harvey will oversee quality assurance, testing and performance measurement.   
    Harvey holds a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in office systems administration and computer information systems from the College of New Jersey. He joined the Judiciary in 1989 as a methods analyst, identifying business needs for new systems and systems enhancements.  

    He was promoted to the position of data processing programmer in 1992 and to senior data processing programmer in 1994.  He most recently served as an information technology project manager, managing multiple project teams on a number of initiatives, a position he has held since 1996.

    Giuliari will oversee Judiciary IT network and server administration, computer operations and systems programming.  He will be responsible for the 24-hour operation of the Judiciary’s data center, more than 600 network locations that support all municipal court and superior court locations, all of the Judiciary’s desktop computers, e-mail systems, as well as purchasing. 

    A Trenton native, Giuliari started at the Judiciary in 1983 as a programmer.  Prior to that, he was a programmer/analyst at Transamerica Delavel in Trenton.  He holds an associate’s degree in computer science from Mercer County Community College, and he is also a U.S. Coast Guard-licensed fishing boat captain. 

    Both Harvey and Giuliari will report to Judiciary Chief Information Officer James R. Rebo.

  • Chief Justice Stuart Rabner announced that Charles Centinaro has been named the director of the Office of Attorney Ethics (OAE).

    He succeeds David E. Johnson Jr., who will retire on Jan. 31 after 32 years with the Judiciary.
    The OAE investigates allegations of attorney misconduct and files formal complaints when warranted. Disciplinary sanctions are imposed by the Supreme Court and include both final discipline, which is imposed after the completion of an investigation, hearing and review by the Disciplinary Review Board, and emergent actions, which are imposed to protect the public while a disciplinary case is pending.

    As the director, Centinaro will lead an office of more than 64 full-time employees and oversee the administration of 18 district ethics committees consisting of 600 volunteers who investigate, prosecute and adjudicate grievances filed against attorneys. He also will oversee the administration of 17 district fee arbitration committees consisting of 300 volunteers who adjudicate fee disputes between clients and attorneys. In addition, he will be responsible for the administration of the Random Audit Compliance Program, which audits trust and business records of law firms to ensure compliance with the recordkeeping requirements of the Supreme Court.

    "Charles brings a wealth of experience to this vital position,” Chief Justice Rabner said. “He has served ably as a leader in the public defender's office, as a prosecutor, member of the executive branch, and private practitioner. We welcome him as he takes on the critically important responsibilities of the Office of Attorney Ethics.

    Stephen Townsend, clerk of the Supreme Court, noted Johnson’s place in the history of New Jersey’s OAE. “David Johnson was named as the first director of the OAE when it was created in 1983. Under the guidance of four chief justices, he has shaped an attorney ethics office that is among the very best in the nation,” Townsend said.

    During 2007, the last full year for which statistics are available, OAE and the district ethics committees together received 1,553 grievances. In that year, some form of discipline was imposed on 155 attorneys. In addition, the fee arbitration committees resolved 1,038 fee disputes.

    Centinaro serves as the director of juvenile defense services for the Office of the Public Defender, a position he has held since 2007. From 2001 until 2007, he served as the first assistant deputy public defender for the Mercer trial region.
